    I have the same problem with a Viking Prisma 940. I check with every dealer within 50 miles of me and everyone of them wanted me to take the machine in to let them see what the problem was. Needless to say I know what the problem is... I have searched the net for hours trying to find the "FUSE"... HELP!!!!!!!!! Found plenty of sites to order parts, just couldn't find the fuse.

    I have a Janome 8000 and it will not power up, was told by the dealer I bought it from that it was the circuit board and also the LED board needed to be replaced as well. Can these boards be purchased and can I replace them myself? The dealer I bought it from is pushing for me to purchase a new 11000 model. Would rather get this machine fixed if possible, When it comes on it makes a loud noise similar to a microwave being used.

I have a memory craft 8000 that gets a message stating "Stepping Motor Error". What can I do to try to fix it?

    im not sure if this is fixed, but if not, try pushing the embroidery arm on the machine back into position as this is often the error when you accidently hit and take out of position the embroidery arm because you have something behind the machine when it was moving. i hope this helps

I had the same problem last week, and you need to take to sewing repair dealer, as the black box the fuse is in, located inside the machine. The manual states if this happens take to the dealer and let them change the fuse. Good luck.

Most likely you will have to remove the covers and find the fuse on the circuit board. But be carefull as any static from you may harm the circuit board. Just touch something that is grounded first and release whatever charge you may be walking around on, carpet, etc. Removing the covers is no big deal. Just remember where the screws came from and put it back togeather in reverse of how you took it apart. You can have the dealership order a fuse for you. Might save you 50.00 or so. Good luck.

I want to sell my 1991 New Home memory Craft 8000 sewing machine

A good place to see what machines are selling for is Ebay. That's where I sold a sewing machine and an embroidery machine.

It helps to know your product and machine embroidery lingo.

What are cassettes? Floppy disks? These make the machine borderline obsolete.

Memory cards are still around, but most EM now have USB connectivity or USB flash drives.

Satin thread? Embroidery machines use Rayon or Polyester embroidery thread.

Having had the machine recently serviced is also a plus.

Need touchscreen backlight for merory craft 8000 janome new home

When your Memory Craft 8000 or MC 5700 is otherwise working fine but the LCD display screen begins to grow darker and you find you just can't read it, the only thing you can do is replace the LCD screen, or buy a new machine.
Janome no longer stock this item direct, but there is an affordable replacement available.

Full Access and Installation instructions are provided, so you can DIY or have someone else do the replacement for you.

Check this Link

Also includes advice, links & contacts to be able to Reset your screen and do a Self Diagnosis Routine to test your machine BEFORE you purchase a replacement LCD backlight for either the Janome MC 8000 or MC 5700, so you can check that there are no other troubles.

New home 8000 memory craft embroidery machine

Locate a Janome dealer and have him order them for you. The power cord can be purchased from Radio Shack if the dealer doesn't have one.
